Hello there! How was your week? Ours was a little bit chaotic… we really need some rest this weekend! Do you know what would be perfect? A road trip in the Cotswolds! Ever since I saw this post I’m dreaming about it. Only Berta is capable of capturing and trasmitting such and elegant yet casual vibe. Her blog and her style are our favourites at the moment. That’s why she is our inspiration for this weekend.
London is one of our favorite destinations when it comes to weekend getaways but finding a nice accommodation can be tricky. We have stayed in really different places: from the überpriced B&B in Paddigton to a huge hotel facing the famous Big Ben. But we finally have found our home in London. I never thought I would say that, but we have found the hotel where we would love to stay from now on every time we visit London. The search is over. Let us introduce you to The Mandeville Hotel.
Carnaby street begins with 90′s Brit pop and a cinnamon cupcake. It continues with classic rock and hamburgers served by a guy in a tiki shirt.
No, I’m not talking about us and the upcoming Saint Valentine fuss. I’m talking about JCrew. You know we love it. We adore it. Even our wedding dresses were JCrew. But after visiting their store on Regent Street in London we are just head over heels.
We wanted to make a getaway this month and spend a nice long weekend in London. But as they say, life got in the way. So sadly, we won’t be able to visit this fantastic place this moth. Nevertheless, we’ve decided to make a little hommage to London and share with you the 11 things we love about it.
Last weekend we stayed at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London. Although we are not very fond of big hotels (and believe me, this hotel is huge) we were pleasantly surprised. I have to admit that the staff was simply lovely. They were charming and made us feel like we were the only guests in the hotel. So I would say that the best thing in this hotel is its staff. No doubt. But we also liked the super nice views from our bedroom (picture above), the cool decor, the central location and its declicious cuisine.
Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday! Here you have some pics of our weekend in London. We always have a great time in this amazing city and come back home thinking about moving to London! At some point I think we will actually move there… Anyway! This time we discovered the East, made a new friend (hi Alba!) while arranging the first collaboration of this little blog of ours, went to a musical (The Jersey Boys, super fun!) and had brunch with friends in the nicest place of London (post about it coming soon!). But there was more…
Off to London! Whoop whoop! We are so excited because this weekend we are having our first blog-related meeting! :)
This is also the first time that we will stroll around Shoreditch, Pizza East maybe?
We will eat at Tokyo Diner, have a look at Uniqlo, go to the cinema and swim in the hotel swimmingpool (Our hotel has a great indoor swimmingpool, how cool is that?).
I hope you have a nice weekend! See you on Monday!
We forgot to tell you about the hotel where we stayed during our last London getaway! London is always tricky when it comes to accommodation. The hotel offer is overwhelming but it’s diffcult to find something nice, with a good price and a convenient location. Sometimes I feel I have to chose between seedy B&Bs or super expensive (but fabulous, let’s face it) hotels. Well, last time we got lucky and found The Grosvenor hotel.
